It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

Friday! Video games! Let's talk! Another Friday is upon us, bringing with it the expected batch of due dates for college assignments. Boo hiss.

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

Friday! Video games! Let's talk! I'm not sure if it's due to inclement weather on behalf of Irma or what, but this week has been relatively slow on the college front -- a most welcome surprise. I took advantage of that by figuratively murdering my backlog, while also managing to sink a bit of time … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

The weekend is finally upon us! What's on your agenda? Since the last weekend wrap-up, I've managed to finish Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE.
